is that it provides you (the blogger) with a bunch of random stats.
Stats on how many people have viewed your blog in a particular day, stats on your most visited blog entry that week/month/year, links that people have clicked from your blog, and my personal fav: search engine results that have linked people to your blog. This little gem can be quite hilarious, so I wanted to share a few of the search engine terms that you readers typed into the internet to find yourself on my bloggy blog.
- “How not to inhale water” – I wrote a few entries on how I was struggling to not inhale water and breath properly while swimming, so perhaps that how the Internets connected that search phrase to my blog
- “Ben Folds The Luckiest Wedding” – that was the song my newly wed cousin danced to at the wedding I went to in VT back in Jan.
- “Chords for Wagon Wheel” and every other combination of that phrase, plus the entire chorus from the song – I’ve been writing about how I’m learning to play Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show on guitar, so that makes sense.
- “How to play music when playing lustrun” – I don’t even know what that means
- “Phase take it and run with it” – Perhaps from the title of my blog?
- “Domino’s and new” – I once wrote about how I recently discovered the amazingness of Domino’s new pizza. And I will again: if you haven’t tried it, go do it. It’s sort of like heaven.
- “Cleveland marathon training” – This is pretty legit, because I’ve been writing about my training for the May Cleveland marathon, and I’m pretty excited that someone else was looking up what to do to train for it, and found my blog
- “A cow running on 2 legs pictures” – No joke. I have no idea how or why, but someone seriously looked that up, and stumbled onto my blog. That’s awesome.
I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did… oohhh the wonders of the internet.
Running update: LJ and I did our Wednesday track workout this morning. 10 min warm up, 3 1200m repeats at ~5:20 (7:07 mile pace), 10 min cool down. Even after the strenuous weekend of long running and epic skiing, my knee held out okay and fortunately didn’t hurt! Success!
